Can you rise to the challenge of 31 days alcohol free? Why don’t you set the challenge in work? It could be a great way to get individuals or teams thinking about their drinking. You could also hold an alcohol free social event or a competition to make the best alcohol free cocktail. Be creative!

Over Christmas and New Year we often over indulge with food and alcohol, so having a Dry January is a great chance to recharge and make a healthy start to the New Year. People who got involved last year said that by giving up the booze for the month they saved money, lost weight, and had better sleep, skin and hair.


If you and your colleagues complete the Dry January Workplace Challenge you have the chance to be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win a £20.00 voucher to spend at Green City Events.

All you need to do is provide us with names and contact details of everyone in your organisation who stayed alcohol free for the whole month and individuals will be entered into the draw.


Whether your an employer, part of a team, or an individual looking for a fun and healthy challenge, you’ll find everything that you need to take part in Dry January in the downloads section below – including mocktail recipes, a sponsorship form, and a chart to track your progress.

If you’d like us to send you a Workplace Challenge Chart to track the progress of you and colleagues please contact Laura.Wilson3@wales.nhs.uk to place your order.

Cardiff and Vale Public Health Team will be asking for feedback on these resources in February 2015, so if you’re planning on taking part let them know at elin.evans5@wales.nhs.uk.
